Our field development support mechanism process:

“We are now in the fourth year of the Syria crisis and we can see that there is not only a host community fatigue [in Lebanon], but also a donor’s fatigue,” said Emily Jacquard, Director of Search for Common Ground’s Lebanon country office. “We are facing a decrease of funding. Now more than ever, local and international actors need to come together to share resources, knowledge and cross fertilise.”

On the  link below you will find a presentation of the concept behind the development aid support offered by Knowledge For Development Without Borders:

When natural or man-made disasters occur, humanitarian actors need timely and accurate information to plan their course of action. Data, however, isn’t always easy to come by.

Organised byEuropean Security and Defence College (EEAS/ESDC)

The overall aim of the CSDP High Level Course (HLC) is to prepare selected
senior individuals from EU Member States and EU Institutions for leadership
positions in the application and development of the CSDP policy, crisis
management and capability development, which are able to cooperate
effectively with the various actors in this field. The course aims to broaden
course participants’ knowledge and understanding of the EU security and
defence architecture, the comprehensive nature of the CSDP as a key tool of
CFSP, current and anticipated policy, missions and operations, as well as to
increase their awareness of human rights and gender, freedom security and
justice and horizontal issues.

The training delivered both via the eLearning platform and during the
residential Modules promotes a common European security culture and aims to
foster the network of future leaders involved in the strategic aspects of the
CFSP/CSDP.

Organised byUNICEF

UNICEF has refined its approach to humanitarian innovation in the context of
ongoing efforts to strengthening its humanitarian action; including a
commitment to maintaining a strong cadre of humanitarian innovators within
the organization who are familiar with the innovations being used in
UNICEF’s humanitarian work and as well as the policy environment and
principles of innovating in a humanitarian context.
The Humanitarian Innovators Network Lab will take the form of a Co-Design
Workshop, where humanitarian innovation network members and technical experts
will develop prototype solutions in two specific areas where stakeholder
mapping and problem identification phases have already been completed.

Traditionally humanitarian aid comes into play as an immediate response to provide lifesaving assistance in a natural or man-made disaster situation. Whereas, development practitioners work on increasing resilience to reduce the risk of disasters. But what about the middle ground? Dr Thorsten Klose [TK] of the German Red Cross discusses how scientific information can be incorporated into the humanitarian system to better prepare for disasters.
EU Aid Volunteers is an initiative of the European Union that brings together volunteers and organisations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening the local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.
